Item description for "How Shall They Hear?": Effective Preaching for Vital Faith by Samuel DeWitt Proctor...

There is "a new audience facing the preacher of the gospel today," writes Dr. Proctor. Addressing the needs of this new audience, one that lives in an ever-changing world, Proctor explores four vital faith issues that he sees as the basis of relevant preaching. First presented as the 1990 Lyman Beecher Lectures on Preaching at Yale Divinity School, these concepts are described by Dr. Proctor as "the basic messages that hearers are listening for from the preacher." Preachers seeking to bring the Gospel alive to the person in the pew will find sermon preparation fired with powerful ideas as Proctor explores four faith propositions: God's presence and participation in human affairs; spiritual renewal that restores and redeems human nature and that is available to all; the achieving of genuine community through God's enduring love for humanity; the experiencing of eternity in the here and now. Speaking to both pastor and layperson, Dr. Proctor offers spirit-enriching messages for group study, personal reflection, and preparation of sermons that meet the deepest needs of today's Christians.
